Organic Deodorant Cream and A Giveaway

For years I have had trouble using what would be called traditional deodorant/antiperspirant. All kinds of things would give me rashes or I would get odd bumps (the size of marbles) under my arm. it's been rough! 

So I have been using alternative products, and they don't always work too well. But I just tried one from Bella Organics that has been doing a good job for me. It is their Vanilla Mint Deodorant Cream.

Now this is something that some of you may feel uncomfortable using, but believe me, it's easy to get used to and the benefits are worth it. Many of you may not realize what chemicals are included in the traditional deodorant/antiperspirant. The list of ingredients is huge and the affect of even one or two of them on your body (or in since they do absorb into your skin) can be pretty bad! The thing is you don't see the effects right away, they build up over time and often are not connected with just your underarm product. of course that could be said about a lot of the products you use daily to clean and care for yourself.

I really have been enjoying using the small sample tub of Bella Organics Vanilla Mint Deodorant Cream. It's light and not cakey like a few others I have tried. It only take a small amount under each arm to do the job too. I was very pleased with that. The cream absorbs into your skin easily and on top of keeping you stink-free, your underarm area gets very soft too! Nice benefit.

The thing I do like the best though is the fragrance. It's a very lovely minty vanilla smell. It's really very lovely and invigorating. Every time I use it, is wakes me up and energizes me. It helps me get going in the morning and I really need that since I am far from a morning person!

So what is in this stuff? Simple, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Arrowroot Powder, (Vegan), Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Aluminum-Free Baking Soda, Organic Peppermint Essential Oil, Organic Vanilla Extract, Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil.

Those are some amazing ingredients and when combined they really work well! Here's why the product works so well:
Organic arrowroot powder absorbs wetness naturally. Organic Shea butter soothes and moisturizes dry skin. Coconut oil has natural anti-bacterial properties as well as soothes and conditions the skin. Organic peppermint and organic tea tree essential oils provide anti-bacterial and germ-killing anti-septic properties. All without nasty chemicals that can build up in your body!

Seriously, this stuff works and it smells amazing! It leaves you feeling confidently cool, fresh and clean. You have to love that!
